PM Harper Appoints His Democratic Deficit’s First Senator!
Well he did what he said he would never do. CP reports that Conservative PM Stephen Harper today officially appointed Montreal lawyer Michael Fortier, a Conservative back room party organizer who was also named Harper's unelected Public Works minister. A double Conservative democratic deficit whammy! Notice Harper's little spin attempt to mitigate and deflect his democratic deficit move by using Alberta Premier Ralph Klein to announce on his behalf that "He's going to proceed with senatorial elections this fall". Can hardly wait to see local Conservative constituency propaganda officer and apologist, Eric, send his Letter to the Editor justifying this move too after his gawd awful attempt to justify the Emerson bait & switch move!
